Elements of the #IndyRef Yes campaign seem to be operating some form of blitzkrieg against visiting English politicians.
With Ed Miliband supposed to be doing a walkabout/stump speech in an Edinburgh shopping centre, LabourList editor Mark Ferguson describes the moment when “all hell broke loose”:
“Despite having been arranged at short notice, there were Yes campaigners there shouting loudly. Whilst the Yes campaign may write this kind of thing off as a few rogue campaigners, this could only have been organised – considering the number of people there and how quickly they’d congregated.
It then became apparent that Miliband would be speaking inside:
“Yes supporters started shouting and running inside, followed by No supporters. Pushing and shoving commenced. I saw an old lady knocked to one side and a mother yell as her pushchair was almost toppled.
The video also offers us a peek behind the curtain, with staffers discussing how to rescue the situation:
“Why don’t you bring some people in?”
“I can’t because you’re in the middle of the f**cking shot, aren’t you!”
